Okay, well...my name is Valerie. I'm not a parent, although at times I feel like one (I have to take care of my sister). But I am a SAH of sorts. I'm disabled. Not to mention, I have social anxiety. I like to stay alone, most of the time. I do the domestic things. I have to pull my own weight. I do get my own paychecks. Of course, it's below the poverty line. But it's something. I think SAHMS deserve pay. More than I make. After all, I'm making money to stay home. But most stay-at-homes make no money for the work they do.

Yes, true, but for most people, aftercare is significantly cheaper than FT daycare, for example.

Not with my particular job, I make commission and it does not go up every year.

I had the greatest experience at Chuck E Cheese last week. I dropped my kid off for a birthday party, and picked him up when it was over. I didn't even have to go inside!!

Well, under those circumstances, CEC is obviously a wonderful thing, lol.

Now, that's my idea of a trip to Chuck E Cheese.
